But I'll Do Anything To Get Out Of It!

what are we waiting for?

Do you ever feel like all you do is wait? Waiting for one thing to happen before something else can?

Waiting for my kids to get older before thinking about what I want to "be" when I grow up. Waiting to be the right size before feeling good about my physical appearance. Waiting for a slow week to take an evening out with my husband to avoid the guilt of doing too much away from the kids. Waiting for my 3 year old to go down for a nap to relax and do something I enjoy. Waiting for my house to be spotless before I plan to have friends over to see it. Waiting to purchase something I am really wanting until we have more money stashed away. Waiting to start a project at home like organizing, decorating or scrap booking until there's a big block of time to get it done. Waiting to take a trip until it's a better time. When is a better time? Really, when is a better time??

Who wants to spend a lifetime on waiting? If I keep waiting, these things I wish for, may never come. Life is short. We all know that. So today I am resolving to do more doing than waiting. You with me?
